The U.S. Government Is Stingy With Its Aliens

UFO enthusiasts created an event on July 7th called “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us”. For years so many people have been intrigued by what lay on the secretive agrounds. The famed Area 51 is a highly classified remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base within the Nevada Test and Training Range. Many believe there are Alien remains and various extra-terrestrial artifacts that prove that the government has had contact with intelligent life from other planets. The Facebook details for participants say that on September 20th “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets [sic] see them aliens.” An event that mentions the Naruto running meme gained more than 1 million “going” RSVPs while another 947 K “interested” replies. So – it’s super bananas that anyone would take that seriously – but the United States Air Force isn’t taking any chances. Laura McAndrews, Public Affairs Specialist for the United States Air Force, released a statement saying “[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” McAndrews said. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.” After that stern announcement, we can guess they aren’t into memes.
